The Victorian era is generally regarded as the Golden Age of Poison. Some say poisoning was a common female defense against abusive husbands. During this era, approximately forty women were tried for poisoning their husbands. Then, as now, folks new this number was very underreported. As a result, Parliament restricted poison sales in 1851.

Arsenic was the most popular deadly weapon & In addition to its darker purposes, arsenic was also used by ladies as a beauty product. They would ingest the poison in small doses in an attempt to pale their skin for a dainty and "faint" look.
